Marina Wheeler

In The Lost Homestead, famed human rights lawyer, Marina Wheeler tells the dramatic story of her Sikh mother’s desperate escape from her home, never to return, during the 1947 Partition of India. As an Anglo-Indian – her father was the distinguished BBC journalist Charles Wheeler – Marina succeeds in making sense of her mother’s experience through accounts from her Indian family plus her own research and travels. She is in conversation with Dame Jenni Murray,  journalist, author and broadcaster best known for presenting BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour from 1987 to 2020.
